There are more than 90 million new iPhone users without chargers. What are they using?

Since the release of the iPhone 12 series, the voice of "Thirteen incense" has never stopped. However, it has been proved that there are not a few people who are not satisfied with their integrity.
Apple's first quarter results showed that Apple's revenue in the quarter was $111.439 billion, breaking through the $100 billion mark for the first time. Among them, the revenue of the iPhone segment reached US $65.59 billion, a year-on-year increase of 17%. This increase was mainly due to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 series.



According to the counterpoint report, iPhone shipments reached 81.9 million units in the fourth quarter of 2020. In IDC's global smartphone shipment data for the fourth quarter of 2020, the iPhone shipment reached 90 million.

This means that after the launch of the iPhone 12 series, Apple has gained more than 90 million new iPhone users. Of course, this also includes users who deeply use the apple ecosystem. As we all know, at the launch in October last year, the iPhone 12 series ushered in two major changes. One is that the charging power supported by the iPhone 12 series has been upgraded to 20W. Meanwhile, Apple has officially cancelled the accompanying charger of the iPhone 12 Series in the name of "environmental protection". Not only that, Apple also adjusted the official website of other models on sale. Not only the four models of the iPhone 12 series, but also the iPhone 11, the iPhone XR and the iPhone se are no longer equipped with standard chargers. The ancestral 5v1a charger has also become history. The new package only comes with a usb-c to lightning data cable.

On Apple's website, we can see the following sentence: we recommend that you reuse the existing usb-a to lightning cable, power adapter and headset, which are compatible with this iPhone. But if you need any new Apple power adapter or headset, you can also buy it at any time.

So, what kind of chargers are these 90 million new iPhone users using?



There may be many small partners who don't believe it. Today, many new iPhone users are using Apple's original 5W charger. This group of users are often old iPhone users who have just been updated, and they all have 5W chargers that came with them. Some of them have no idea of "fast charging" at all, while others dare not use it easily because of the consideration of "extending battery life".

About the safety of fast charging, the professor has popularized science many times. Today, fast charging has become the standard configuration of flagship aircraft, and the proportion of new iPhone users who choose to use fast charging charger will certainly be larger. After all, the perception improvement brought by such "once used, it's hard to return" technology is very intuitive.


Which one did they buy? Original or third party? Referring to the sales ranking of 20W PD fast charging released by charging head network and Jingdong in November last year, we can draw a general conclusion.

No doubt Apple's original 20W charger ranks first. Whether it's based on the brand or safety considerations, it's certainly not wrong to choose the original, but the price of 149 yuan is really not low. Ranked second is the domestic well-known digital brand lvlian. The comprehensive performance of lvlian's 20W fast charge is almost the same as Apple's original. On the basis of PD fast charge certification, there are CCC & CQC dual certification, but the price is less than a quarter of the original. Therefore, it is not surprising that among the numerous third-party brands of third-party chargers, lvlian has become the choice of more people. This year, more users prefer to choose smaller Mini fast chargers with the same power, and the "Little King Kong" of the green alliance stands out. It uses the mini-x technology innovated by Greenlink and integrates three kinds of charging black technologies. Its volume is close to Apple's original 5W charger, but its power is increased to four times. It can charge 60% for iPhone 12 in 30 minutes. At the same time, the folding pin increases the portability.


Apple does not standard charger this move, not only let Apple charger become a best-selling accessories, but also led to the hot domestic accessories market. Professor suggested that the partners should choose the regular charger of big brand, after all, all aspects are more secure.
